tells the denver post he will honor temporary work permits for young illegal immigrants granted by president obama in an executive order in june. it's the first time he's expressed support for the act. here's what he said in los angeles recently. >> president obama created what he calls a stopgap measure. those are his words. for children who are brought here illegally through no fault of their own. instead of playing politics with these children, i will pursue permanent immigration reform. >> reporter: the president's executive order is a shortened version of the dream act. legislation that would grant citizenship to these same immigrants under certain conditions. mitt romney has opposed the bill in the past. >> pledging, "if i were elected and the congress were to pass the dream act, would i veto it? the answer is yes." >> reporter: most polls show president obama with a very comfortable lead among hispanic-american voters, and a new survey shows why that's important. this year, nearly 24 million hispanic americans will be eligible to vote. that far exceeds the 19 million who

the dynamite to denver? a little over the a day for the presidential debate. both president obama and mitt romney getting ready for their first face-off tomorrow night in colorado. doing the hefty lifting on the number two on the ticket and the candidates' wives. mitt romney is in denver where last night he tried to put the kibosh on predebate winning. >> people want to know who is going to win, who will make the biggest difference and scoring of winning and losing. in my view it's not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> his rival president obama who is in day number three of debate camp in nevada dropped by one of his own campaign headquarters. >> it was very nice, you know. although, basically, they are keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they are making me do my homework. >> despite the best efforts, the drum beat is building. it's getting louder and louder with great debate e
romney wanted to be there, president obama didn't want to be there. >> reporter: some blamed denver's high elevation for the president's performance. >> when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> -- and you only have a few hours to adjust, i don't know. >> that's interesting. >> reporter: the president spent much time looking down at his podium and taking notes and squandered easy opportunities to go after romney such as this moment. >> i like pbs. i love big bird. i actually like you too. but i am not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. a wide opening. the president took more than 14 hours to come up with a comeback. >> thank goodness, somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it's about time. >> reporter: many top democrats suggest one of the problems may be one common to incumbents, the president has lived in a bubble for four years, surrounded by adulation and rarely challenged. the obama campaign acknowledged they will conduct a reassessment before the next debate. jake tapper, abc news, traveling with the president in madis
of denver, i'm jim lehrer, thank you and good night. >> that's the end of the first >> that's the end of the first presidential debate between governor romney of massachusetts and president obama. you see both men being greeted by their wives on stage. even this portion of the debate is negotiated ahead of time by the campaigns in terms of which members of their family will be joining them on stage. this is, these these are negotiated down to this level of detail. in terms of how the overall debate unfolded, i personally do not know who won this debate. i do feel that we saw this debate format die a very painful death on camera tonight. the contrast between the candidates was stylistic as much as substantive. president obama i think calm and basically explanatory tonight. governor romney, more hyper, and i don't mean that in a negative way, just sort of more amped, more assertive. and that manifests in a way that the debate format was just dismantled. the format and i think the moderator, with all due respect to mr. lehrer dismantled. this is one of those debates, you could predict th
the candidates are back on the campaign trail today. president obama starts out where he left off in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap. of the debate was moderated by mitt romney. oh wait, we mean jim lehrer who i think it is safe to say did worse than expected. the president did not perform up to his usual standards and mitt romney came out swinging taking a very offensive approach against the president as well as jim lehrer, big barned the entire pbs crew. the debate focus around the economy as we knew it would and the candidates traded jabs over tax policies for the middle class. >> romney: under the president's policies middle income americans have been buried. they've been crushed. i will not under any circ

the country. >> we're back to denver, the site of tonight's first presidential debate between president obama and mitt romney. earlier tonight our commentator, lawrence o'donnell talked with rob portman who played president obama during the romney's debate prep. >> senator portman, you played president obama in the debate prep sessions with governor romney. what were you surprised by president obama's performance tonight? did he do what you were doing in the debate prep? >> i thought he seemed a little uncomfortable, to be honest. i think as president you're not used to getting asked questions whether it's by jim lehrer or lawrence o'donnell. i think the next debate, the town hall format the president will do a good job. this was the first debate and i thought governor romney clearly laid out the different -- the okay candidates and importantly for you were decided voters ohio and elsewhere, what he will do differently. this is only the first of three debates. another one coming up in a couple weeks and then one after that, so, we'll see what happens. i think tonight the dynamic of the race c
% for president obama. 18% felt there was no clear winner. last night's forum in colorado focused mainly on the economy and other domestic issues. that debate took place at the university of denver, colorado being a big swing state in this election, as well. the focus of the debate was the economy. but big bird somehow got into the dialogue there. and, of course, as we mentioned, there were some polls that showed that romney came out ahead of the president on that first debate. bigad shaban joins us live from denver with some highlights from last night. [ pause ] >> reporter: good morning. it seems mitt romney may have got the boost he was hoping for after putting the president on the defensive all night. romney you wanted to his own successes as massachusetts governor but highlighted what he called the failed promises of the obama administration. >>> reporter: the first presidential debate started with a handshake and a romantic moment. >> 20 years ago, i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniver
of intensive preparation in nevada. on monday, romney will hunker down for two days in denver, the site of wednesday's debate. in romney's sessions president obama will be played by ohio senator rob portman who was on romney's short list for vice president. on stage with the president will be massachusetts senator john kerry who will play romney. kerry and romney knew each other well when romney was governor of massachusetts both campaigns are desperately trying to lower expectations. in a memo leaked to the press a top romney adviser called the president one of the most talented political communicators in modern history and noted the president has engaged in eighty-one-on-one presidential debates while this is romney's first. the obama campaign is also down playing expectations. they say he hasn't had enough time to prepare for the debate because he's been so busy as president dealing with a series of crises in the middle east. >> chip reid in boston. thanks. >>> for more on campaign 2012, we turn to jonathan allen, a senior political correspondent from politico. jonathan, good morning

. i'm chris matthews in washington. on the way to denver. let me start with this brand new nbc/wall street journal poll out tonight. what it shows in addition to an obama leading that's hardening is a deep concern that mitt romney said about that 47% of the country he says can't be counted on to meet its responsibility. it's that part of the country that romney has dismissed as free-loaders, moochers, takers. people, especially veteran families, people retired on social security, regular americans, that is, don't like being dismissed that way, injury added by insult. i'm joined by chuck todd and howard fineman with "the huffington post." the latest poll shows among likely voters the president leads 49% to 46% for romney. that's down net two points from two weeks ago when the president was up by five. to what to you attribute the movement, chuck todd? >> well, first of all, the more important number has always been the president sitting at 49% or 50%. i would go through his job approval rating at 49%, his ballot test at 49%, those converge, and that's what matters and 49% puts y

barack obama versus mitt romney tonight officially at 9:00 eastern time. and joining me now from denver is cnn's candy crowley, she will moderate the second presidential debate. that is coming up october 16th. candy, huge, huge honor. we'll talk about that in a second. first, let's talk tonight specifically the format, let me play some sound, because we have six distinct segmentsegments, so sound. do you think, candy, given the 15-minute chunks here and there that they're here and there that they're looking for substance and detail? will the format encourage that? >> reporter: i would certainly think so. let's remember the first three as far as i remember it when they put out the debate subject, number o the economy, number two the economy, number three the economy. so you add that all up. i'm getting like 45 minutes on the economy. now, it's a big subject. but i do think that there is a chance there to go in depth. but a lot of that depends on these two candidates. are they willing to go in depth? are they willing to engage with each other about specifics? are they willing to kind of r
, president obama tried to rebound from his pretty weak debate performance at a rally in denver. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow onstage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> tonight, the post-debate political landscape seems rather different. a whopping 67% think mitt romney won the debate. 25% for president obama. there's a long way to go in this debate and the divide between left and right is growing. that brings me to tonight's battleground america. the debate you have been waiting for. jennifer granholm versus newt gingrich. she's the former governor of michigan. he's of course, the former presidential candidate and speaker of the house. just as in last night's debate, we are running a clock at the bottom of your screen to keep track of speaking time for our debaters although frankly, i want a real debate. if you two decide
con un empate. romney tenía que ganar y terminó 1 a 1, 0 a 0, 2 a 2 y ese empate ha favorecido a obama el primer debate presidencial creara una expectativa enorme, y justo figdz, por el segundo debate que viene pocos días. >>> perfecto, antess de continuar, vamos a regresar nuevamente a denver colorado como observador. el congresista por la florida el republicano, mario díaz-balart. mario ¿como está? congresista. como lo conozco, tengo la co fianza. >>> yo trabajo con el pueblo soy empleado. >>> claro que sí bueno, como sabes, romney dijo y hemos discutido aquí no reducirá impuestos para los ricos si no para la clase media. no es lo que ha estado diciendo durante la campaña. y el presidente obama se lo mencionó y lo dijo. y tuvo una frase interesante que le dijo a 0 r obama. que el plan de romney es decir siempre no. tiene razón de criticar. >>> viene un aumento de impuesto masivo a todo el mundo y el gobernador romney ha dicho que no quiere aumentar los im paourr imiento im puestos a nadie el único que quiere aumentar impuestos en esta contienda es el presidente obama y el
polls we have seen the race getting closer, even though obama's bounce out of the convention is holding, he remains at near 50% in all our polls. what do you make of the situation now, chuck, going into tomorrow night's really important debate out in denver between the two candidates? how do you see the election standing now five weeks out? >> well, right now five weeks out if you can have a solid small lead, he has it, okay? he has hit what i think are his ceiling numbers, 49%, 50%, 51% in the state. hard to imagine in any of these battleground states with maybe the exception of ohio and iowa how he gets to, quote, 52% or even 53%. so he's at a ceiling. he's at about topped out. the question is how much coalescing happens around romney? i think you're seeing some of it now, and that's why he's popping among likely voters in particular. there's one other thing the obama folks have to worry about, we see evidence of it in our own polling, and it also explains why there's such a massive difference between registered voters back and forth between obama and romney and the likely voters. the
. >> thank you very much for this opportunity. thank you, governor romney and the university of denver. 20 years ago, i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me. i want to wish you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now, we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system froze up. because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come back. housing has begun to rise. we have a lot of work to do. the question here is not where we have been but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skew toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations, we will be better off. i have a different view. we have to invest in education and training. it is important to develop new sources of oil
